Tending Alive is...
...an ecological project born in response to the question:
What is possible if all people return their hands to the soil and remember how to tend our ecosystems alive?
Each Tending Alive offering, from Garden Consultations to Plant ID, carries this question its palm. Even with the complexity of lineage today on indigenous land, each of us can be medicine to our ecosystem. I invite you to begin remembering how.
The earth is a verb. A process. We are a necessary part of ecosystem and community flourishing.

An ecosystem never operates in isolation. The Tending Alive project is offered with an open-palm, what cross-pollination might be possible if we join forces?
If you are an artist, gardener, writer, activist, facilitator—really, anyone inspired to collaborate—send me a note here!
